Artist Spotlight: Daniel Rutkowski -- Strange Flora: A Foray Into Romance & the LED Dream

Daniel Rutkowski, If It All Burns, Archival Pigment Print, 12 x 16"
TAG is proud to host Daniel Rutkowski’s Strange Flora: A Foray into Romance & the LED Dream. This photographic series guides the onlooker down a visual odyssey where the concepts of our gorgeous, palpable, & fragile world merge with the strange digital flamboyance of our screens -- the death of romance, as told through pixels of our world’s flora.
Daniel Rutkowski, To Ooze, Archival Pigment Print, 20 x 16"
Technology and digitalization have truly infected and encapsulated our modern lives to a frightening extent. Like shadow to light, and yin to yang, they come in two disparate forms: the good and the bad.
Daniel Rutkowski, Naked & Blue, Archival Pigment Print, 20 x 16"
With newfound ease and rapid-fire knowledge, this computerized realm has the ability to provide wisdom in a fraction of a moment, able to heal, teach, inspire, and connect. It has the potential to sow and reap the greatest of all human cognition in the world... but under the beauty and unyielding strengths, comes another world, a world that holds its fair share of poisons in the form of pixels so utterly intriguing and distracting that we lose place in our own existence.
Daniel Rutkowski, Bomba, Archival Pigment Print, 12 x 16"
A form of absurd hand-held escapism, this LED facade allows for a window into a world where nothing can come close enough to harm or love you, where there is safety in the fact that the window remains closed. Where human interaction, genuine social awareness, and love don’t exist.
Daniel Rutkowski, Trigger Green, Archival Pigment Print, 16 x 20"
See the exhibition through Saturday, April 14th.
Meet Daniel at the Artist Talk: Saturday, April 7, 3 p.m.
